North Devon IWW is a new group aiming to build working class power in Barnstaple, Bideford, and throughout the region.

Our area is plagued by rubbish working conditions. We are paid some of the lowest wages in England, and many of us are forced into precarious employment with zero-hour contracts and seasonal work.

Alone we can do little to improve our situation. But together in a union we can fight back!

How we can help

A union is a group of workers who come together to resolve problems at work and make things better.

We can support you to form your own union at your workplace. We use a novel organising method based on direct democracy and direct action! We can help by giving you training and close support. But you and your colleagues ultimately have complete control; you decide the campaigns and the solutions, and take the action you want to take.

Whatever your industry and wherever you are, you are welcome to join us to take the fight to your boss!

Join us! Get in touch

Due to the spread of our members across North Devon, we hold regular group meetings online.

If you are a new member we are very happy to meet up with you personally!

Or if you and your colleagues are looking for a union to join, we can have a chat to discuss our method and what you can expect from us.


We host meetings on the first Monday of the month at 19:00 – 20:30.

They are held online on a free program called Jitsi. Details of meetings are emailed in advance to all local members.
